Unlocking the Fourth weapons
Obtain the following character's 'fourth weapon' by performing the corresponding tasks:
Play Conquest of Kyushu on Hard or Chaos mode. To acquire the Heaven's Bite (Raikou Suseri), you have to mess with the Shimazu clan. Start by crossing the bridge to fall into an ambush. After taking down Iehisa Shimazu, head to the northeast fort to defeat Tadanaga Shimazu. Then, go south to defeat Yoshihiro Shimazu. This will open the doors, which lead to another ambush on the eastside. Route Toshihisa Shimazu to leave only Yoshihisa Shimazu around. Feeling lonely, Iehisa, Toshihisa, and Yoshihiro will return in Hyper mode. You now have four hyper generals. Defeat them exactly in the order following ordert o prompt a supply team to appear at the northeast gate that will run for the west: Iehisa, Toshihisa, and Yoshihiro. Intercept the supply team, then trash Yoshihisa Shimazu to end the stage.
Play Attack On Ueda Castle. To acquire the Chained Dragon (Inga Yomitsu), you must play in Hard or Chaos mode. Defeat Kotarou Fuuma and all of his clones (three), then take out Yukimura Sanada before beating Masayuki Sanada. Stop the water attack to make things easier for you on your way to Kotarou Fuuma and his three clones. However, watch out for super-hyper Yukimura Sanada. After defeating Masayuki Sanada, you will get a precious item report in the back of the castle on the first floor, on the right side, behind where one of Fuuma's duplicates were found.
Play Battle Of Shizugatake. To acquire the Simian Sansetsu (Mibashira no Utsumiko),you must play in Hard or Chaos mode. Defeat Toshiie Maeda and convince him to retreat before Katsuie Shibata orders him to charge. Then, defeat Keiji Maeda when he charges your home base. Get over to Toshiie Maeda and crush him before the order is given by Katsuie Shibata. You will know if you are too late and the charge order has been given if Toshiie Maeda is in Hyper mode. After you take care of him, get back to your main base to intercept Keiji Maeda before he gets there. Wipe out inconsequential generals along the way, if necessary. Keep the fight with Keiji away from any of your allies or else they will die in the crossfire between you and the Hyper Keiji Maeda. Bring him down and get ready to catch the supply team that will appear at the gate near Toshiie Maeda's base and move southwards.
Play Battle Of Sekigahara. To acquire the Quake Maker (Koujin Wakatakeru), play in Hard or Chaos mode. Simply cut loose and kill all the enemy generals. Though you are not obligated to keep your allies alive (you might want their help), make sure to keep in mind the order in which you dispatch your foes. usually many would defect your side. For example, taking Ekei Ankokuji will spur Hiroie Yoshikawa and Hidemoto Mouri to defect. Leave them alone for now and knock around some generals in the central area. Another mess you must be aware of is that Hideaki Kobayakawa will waver a short time into the battle. Usually you would send Magobei Fuse to shoot at him to convince Hideaki Kobayakawa to defect. To defuse this situation, stay away from Magobei Fuse and let him die. Upon his death, all hell will break loose and the entire enemy force will come charging in on their new morale-boosted fever. Now is the time to destroy them all without worry. With Mitsunari Ishida all alone, a supply team carrying your fourth weapon will appear from the fort in the northwest, and move south.
Go through the Siege of Odawara Castle in Story mode under the Hard or Hell difficulty setting. You must defeat all the Hojo officers by yourself. The sequence is up to you, but the following is recommended. Start by razing any enemies you can see until the siege ramp is ready. Once it is ready, protect it. When you are beyond the walls, defeat the officer that guarding the cannons. Note: Do not kill the Reserve Captains as this will keep the allied officers busy. Then, defeat all three officers at south gate (the one with Shimazu). Ignore the storehouse sub-mission once you are done. Kotaro will send three more officers to your main camp. Go and eliminate them. If you are quick enough, defeat three officers at main gate. Continue opening the gates by starting from the middle gate and again, defeat the two officers guarding that position. After that, proceed to north gate to defeat three officers there (one with Masamune Date). Go to the northwest area and defeat the two officers before Masamune does. After, proceed into the castle (the bomb corridor) and defeat the two officers guarding it. Again, go into the castle and immediately go to south or lower left area where the storehouse is located. Defeat all the officers there. You must hurry before the Shimazu army does. Then, continue to the second floor in the castle and defeat Kotaro. A supply team will show up in the east of the castle walls. Intercept them, pick up the Coiled Viper weapon, then defeat the two Hojos at the third floor.
Play Last Stand Against Ieyasu. To acquire the Evil's Bane (Kamunaobi no Mitsurugi), thrash Masamune Date, Tadakatsu Honda, Hanzou Hattori, and Inahime. Trigger their appearance by approaching and escorting Kagekatsu Uesugi. Kill Masamune Date first, then take out the other three before allies like Keiji Maeda and Yukimura Sanada get them. Then, take a horse to catch the supply team that will show up from the gate north of the central plain and scurry northeast.
To acquire his fourth weapon, get 1,000 kills on Keiji's fourth stage, the Battle Of Hasedou.
Play Conquest Of Kyushu. To acquire the Frozen Flame (Ama no Murakumo), you must prove your leadership skills as you tour the battlefield while defeating most of the generals. After being turned away by geysers, go towards Shingen Takeda while wiping out Hideyoshi Hashiba, Koroku Hachisuka, and Hidemasa Hori along the way. Soon Toshiie Maeda and Nene will show up for their beating. With them down, move northwest to the enemy home. Be careful; if you kill everyone outside your army will rush the base and you must get in before they do. Once you enter, Yoshihiro Shimazu and Yoshihisa Shimazu will reveal that they are really at the center of the map. At the same time, Nobunaga Oda and Nouhime will also creep down to the northwest fort. You will now have two Shimazus, two fake Shimazus, Nobunaga Oda, and Nouhime coming to kill you. Defeat them all and Mitsuhide Akechi and Ranmaru Mori will appear. Take out Mitsuhide Akechi first, then Ranmaru Mori. Once done, a supply team will materialize in Kenshin's camp. Get the weapon from them. In order to end the stage, you must take on the real Shimazus, which are very strong and in Hyper mode.
Try to maximize his stats before trying to acquire this weapon. On Kotaro's Dream stage, The Defense Of Odawara Castle, you must complete a series of missions under the Hard difficulty setting. You will start in front of the ninja path. Double jump over it and start filling your Musou bar. After Mitsunari's transmission, a siege ramp will appear. Note: Do not destroy it before you receive the mission. After receiving the mission, destroy it before the siege ramp is in place. Then, head to the north (main gate). Rescue Chiba Naoshige and defeat the three officers there. You will notice that Nene will begin her infiltration on the Hojo main general. Ignore it at first and continue your attack on the north garrison. Defeat the three officers there and rescue Honjou Ujiteru. Go towards enemy's main camp and eventually the Tokugawa army will appear. This is the critical part, and you have to be quick to defeat all six Tokugawa officers. You can do it in any sequence, but the recommended one is as follows: First, go to Ieyasu and his friends and defeat them. Next, defeat the two officers at the castle's front door without entering the castle. Then, defeat the final Tokugawa officer at the south area. After finishing the mission, enter the castle and start killing the fire ninjas and destroy the rigged bomb inside the castle before proceeding to the third floor. The bomb placements are usually random, so you will have to search thoroughly. There are usually three bomb and two fire ninjas on first floor and two bombs and three fire ninjas on the second floor. When the mission notice appears, you will know that you have gotten all of them. Hurry to the third floor and defeat Nene. Finally, save your ally officer, Ogawara Yasuhiro, at the southeast of the map. You must hurry because the ally officer is not as tough as you. Defeat the officers that are attacking him. Once done, escort him to the safe location as stated in the map. Along the way you will be ambushed by Sakon Shima at the south garrison (near the ninja path) you to went before. Defeat him. Once Ogawara has safely retreated, you will get a precious item report and the weapon will be on the first floor. Its stats are Base Attack 44, Shura Element, Life +19, Attack +37, Speed +38, Jump +17, Musou Charge +33.
Play Escape From Honnouji. To acquire the Marksman's Pride (Gokuen Kagutsuchi), defeat Nobunaga as quickly as possible. However, with unending fog, you must familiarize yourself with the area. Equip a horse and stick close to the walls. If you have to pull over and fight, use the horse like a compass and park it so it faces in the direction you want to go so you will know how to orient yourself when you get back on. Also, fight as near as possible to your horse. If you get too far, you may lose it forever in the mist. Along the way you will thwart two bandit-on-villager raids and run into Ranmaru Mori and Nouhime. Eliminate them both and proceed east to get to the fort Nobunaga Oda is in. Vanquish the door captain to get in, and rush to defeat Nobunaga Oda as fastas possible. Watch for a message stating that the supply team has appeared. Ride out the south door of the fort (not the door that you entered through) and go directly south. Once you hit a dead end, turn right (west). Keep going and you will be able to find the supply team. To be safe, save the game once you get the supply team message so you can reload in case you cannot find them out there. Once you defeat them, the stage is not over; you must find Kotarou Fuuma and defeat him. Look for him on the east side. However, his appearance can be random from time to time.
Play Showdown At Mikatagahara. To acquire the Manhunters (Oohakari), eliminate all enemy generals except for Ieyasu Tokugawa while keeping all of your ally generals alive. First, make Musashi Miyamoto lose his Hyper powers by taking the forts on the east and west sides. He will charge and fall into an ambush. Kill him, then take the center fort. Make your way around the map killing all the other enemy generals. The only ones you cannot reach yet are Inahime and Ieyasu Tokugawa. Use this as an opportunity to take as many gates as you can, as things are about to get harder. Once you enter Ieyasu's camp, the doors will lock and Ieyasu will reveal himself to be Hanzou Hattori in disguise. At the same time, the real Ieyasu Tokugawa will appear outside the camp. He and Inahime will charge your allies, as well as Tadakatsu Honda and other reinforcements to the north. You must defeat Hanzou as fast as possible to open the gates. Then, speed out and aid your allies, prioritizing those who have multiple generals on them. Killing generals speedily is of the essence, especially when it comes to Tadakatsu Honda. Once you have defeated everyone except Ieyasu Tokugawa, the supply team will show up from the northwest gate and move eastwards.
In Battle for Unification, Mitsuhide's Dream stage, the task is to defeat the following: Masamune Date, Keiji Maeda, Katsuie Shibata, Okuni, Sanada Yukimura, and Naoe Kanetsugu. Startyour attack on Shibata Katsuie first as he is the closest enemy officer. Then later in progress, Keiji and Okuni will charge to your base as will Yukimura and Kanetsugu. Thwart their attacks and proceed to Masamune at south. Defeat him as well and continue to Tokugawa's main base. You must kill a few officers guarding the gate first. After defeating them, Tadakatsu will appear and as well as Kotaro at the northeast. After that, the Akechi army will begin to charge. This will prompt the supply team to show up a short while later from the north gate. Pick up the weapon, defeat Tadakatsu to open the door to Tokugawa, and defeat him to finish the stage. The Gilded Talon's stats are Base Attack 45, Lightning Element, Musou +36, Attack +34, Defense +35, Attack Range +37.
Play The Edo Campaign. To acquire the Golden Frill (Shintasu no Shinsen), you must fulfill a specific number of missions. After killing Yoshiaki Mogami, save your ally Hideie Ukita, who was gullible enough to be lured into a trap. Defeat all the enemy generals around him to successfully rescue him. Some of your friends will now ditch you and turn traitor. Punish them with death (Hiroie Yoshikawa, Hidemoto Mouri, and Hideaki Kobayakawa). You will then receive another mission to return to the inside of the castle and defeat all of the generals there. Once you do, Kotarou Fuuma will appear and try to sneak attack your base from a secret door that opens in the west. Defeat him before he can arrive at your camp. Then, defeat the one guard captain inside the east door of the castle to open a door and find a captured ally general, Ekei Ankokuji. With the prisoner freed, you will receive a mission to escort him back to your base camp. Destroy everything in your path so he does not get distracted and feel obligated to hack at anything nearby (especially all the enemy generals that will ambush the two of you). Once done, enter the main castle from the north side. Defeat the general in the way there and you will find a sealed door. At the dead end, Ekei Ankokuji will suggest another path from the south side. Once this happens, a precious item report will flash on screen and the weapon appears on the bridge between the two sections of the castle. Go to the south side and cross over to the north part of the castle, finding the weapon along the way.
Play Chaos In Kyoto. To acquire the Mastery & Vision (Iwasaku Iwatsutsu), defeat Ieyasu Tokugawa before he retreats. Ride up there and smash him. A supply team will sprint from a gate along the east side, moving south. Pick up the weapon and complete the stage as usual by allowing Hideyori Toyotomi to reach the escape point on the east side. Then, defeat Kojirou Sasaki when he appears.
Play Defense Of Odani Castle. To acquire the King's Honor (Waou no Yachihoko), defeat a series of enemy generals. Get Hidemasa Hori and Saizou Kani, then defeat Nagahide Niwa and Nagachika Kanamori to seize the northwest fort. Quickly move towards the fort in the center to trigger Hideyoshi Toyotomi breaking the walls and charging at the castle. Stop him before he invades the castle. Meanwhile the fort's doors will close and three more generals will ambush you. Crush them all. At around this time, Oichi will begin moving towards the northeast. Once she arrives, Toshiie Maeda and Tsuneoki Ikeda will materialize in the north. Eliminate them. Rush to the fort in the southeast and defeat the generals attacking before Tsunachika Kaihou is defeated. Then, Nagamasa will finally order his army to charge. This will make the supply team to show up from the center gate on the west side and run eastwards.
Play Battle Of Komaki Nagakute. To acquire the Devil Feathers (Toyotama no Tobikodachi), you must save the detached force to the east, take Iwasaki Fort, and defeat Hanzou Hattori, Inahime, and Tadakatsu Honda. Speed over to the east side to aid the greatly weakened detached force. To save them, kill Ujishige Niwa and Naomasa Ii. Then, enter Iwasaki to the immediate south and take it by defeating Yasumasa Sakakibara. This will prompt Ieyasu Tokugawa to move his camp to the west. Meanwhile, Hanzou Hattori will sneak attack your base as Tadakatsu Honda and Inahime attempt to take back Iwasaki Fort. It takes them some time to get there; so dispatch that ninja, Hanzou. He will seal the doors, forcing you to use the ninja route just east of the main door to get in. Eliminate him before he reaches your main camp. With him smashed, return to Iwasaki and defeat Inahime and the Hyper mode Tadakatsu. Then, ride after the supply team that will appear from the gate to the left of the middle area.
In Nobunaga's third stage under the Hard difficulty setting (the Battle of Tedorigawa), you must assist five of your generals in retreating (Hideyoshi Hashiba, Katsuie Shibata, Toshiie Maeda, Kazumasu Takigawa, and Nagahide Niwa). You will receive the mission to assist them to retreat as soon you approach them. This requires defeating the enemy officer(s) that are attacking them and escorting them to safety. The checkpoint is marked with an "X" on the map. Some ally officer will be ambushed, so be wary of them. Defeat as many enemy officers as possible on your side of the river. After all five ally officers are safely retreated, Nobunaga will declare a counterattack. The supply team will appear just south of Kenshin's base and going southward. Defeat them and finish the stage normally. Note: In the late part of the stage, you will be ambush again near your home base. The Demon Regalia stats are Base Attack 46, Wind Element, Musou +18, Attack +35, Defense +16, Speed +18, Musou Charge +35, Attack Range +19.
Play Revolt At Honnouji. To acquire the Delicious Venom (Hiruko), you must complete the mission to defend Nobutada Oda. Then, strangely enough, you must let Ranmaru Mori die without triggering the mission to protect him, with Nobutada Oda still alive. As the stage begins, defeat the two nearby enemy generals harassing Nobunaga Oda. When the fire attack starts, make your way up the left side through the small alleys and approach Nobutada Oda. This will start the mission to defend him, which you can accomplish by defeating both generals attacking him. Return to Nobunaga's side and defeat the new generals attacking him. Watch out for Nobutada. If he gets in trouble, you must rescue him, but of course that means Nobunaga himself might get into trouble. After awhile Mitsuhide Akechi will pop up on the east side. This will cause Ranmaru Mori to charge Mitsuhide's position. Let him do so and take out any remaining generals trying to attack Nobunaga. After Ranmaru gets close to Mitsuhide, do not approach either of them, as that will trigger the mission to protect Ranmaru. If you have already defeated everybody around Nobunaga, feel free to go up back to where Nobutada is and continue protecting him. Ranmaru will probably take quite a long time to die. Once he does though, the supply team will conveniently show up from the west gate near Nobutada's position.
This weapon is worth struggling for but not easy to acquire. On Oichi's Dream stage, The Revolt At Shizugatake, start by defeating nearby officers. After awhile Okuni will appear and assist you. Nene will show up as well, but on Nouhime's side. Nagamasa Azai will eventually try to charge out to assist you, but he will be ambushed. Go to him and defend him. Then, go to the south and defeat Nobunaga. You will be ambushed by Nene, but do not defeat her yet. After defeating Nobunaga, Tachibana and Ina will appear. Defeat both of them. About this time Okuni will turn against you, but do not defeat her yet. Ranmaru will also appear; eliminate him. Finally, defeat Okuni first, then Nene. Nouhime will appear again as well as the supply team. They will be at the left side of the center area. Pick up the weapon and defeat Nouhime to finish the stage. The weapon's stats are Base Attack 42, Lightning Element, Life +34, Attack +38, Defense +34, Musou Charge +32.
Play Infinite Castle. To acquire the Raging Sun (Hinataame no Uzume), clear the Priestess's Temple Donation Solicitation Pilgrimage mission in the Infinite Castle once on any floor above floor 60. Of course, you must complete the mission playing as Okuni. This mission spawns somewhat at random; take it as it comes up. The first floor in the mission has nothing special; on each of the three subsequent stages, you must defeat some subgenerals and then eventually a general such as Ieyasu Tokugawa or Nobunaga Oda. On the fifth and final floor of the mission, you will encounter Keiji Maeda fighting a false Okuni clone. Defeat the fake Okuni to completethe mission. The second time you do this, Keiji Maeda will say he has something for you and turn hostile. Defeat Keiji and he will drop the weapon box with this weapon in it.
Play Infinite Castle. To acquire the Iron Vengeance (Shinken Kamudo), follow a very straightforward list of missions to accomplish. Keep in mind that only the last mission needs to be done with Ranmaru to earn the weapon; you mayclear the other missions using any character desired. First, complete Mitsuhide Akechi's Request 3, which becomes available on floor 41 once Ranmaru Mori is playable. You must assist Mitsuhide Akechi through the next few floors. Upon clearing this mission, Keiji Maeda's Request 2 spawns on floor 31. Complete this mission as well and a new mission, Keiji Keiji's Real Request manifests on floor 46. Complete this mission and on floor 50 Keiji Maeda will decide to test you and turn hostile. Defeat him and the weapon is yours.
Play Battle of Sekigahara. To acquire the Wrecking Blade (Takeminakata), defeat all enemy generals (not counting the traitors) while keeping all of your allies alive. Once done, the supply team will show up from a gate along the south side of the map and run west.
Play Battle of Nagashino. To acquire the Heaven's Sign (Tenson Kourin), you must manage some forts and strategically eliminate your enemies. First, take Nagashino Fort directly in front of you (defeat the general outside to open the doors, then defeat both generals inside to claim it). Then, move south and protect the other fort by defeating Tadatsugu Sakai. When Tadakatsu Honda and Hideyoshi Hashiba appear and attempt to pincer your commander's base from north and south, crush them both before they can enter the base. It is safer to get Tadakatsu first and on the way rout Mitsuhide Akechi. After the event where it begins raining, thus nullifying Nobunaga's muskets, Shingen will order a charge and, a couple moments later, the supply team will show up from the south gate and sprint to the east.
Play Match Before Tenshou. To acquire the Tonbo-giri (Tousen Arahabaki) you must defeat each of the following generals before they are able to enter one of the three forts on the map: Hanzou Hattori, Nene, Kotarou Fuuma, Keiji Maeda, Musashi Miyamoto, Kojirou Sasaki, Hideyoshi Toyotomi, Masamune Date, and Ieyasu Tokugawa. The enemies will arrive in four ranking waves; the order is somewhat random. If you close in on a general on a warpath toward one of the forts, you will receive a mission message to take him or her down before he or she enters said fort. You must be victorious in all nine missions. If a general goes into Hyper mode, it means he has entered the fort he was headed to and you have failed to get the weapon. It does not matter if the other named generals enter any of the forts. Prioritize the generals listed above first. Have player two to help distract (not kill) the generals. Once all nine generals are defeated, the supply team will show up from a southeast gate and head northeast.
Play Breakthrough At Sekigahara. To acquire the Beast Crusher (Ootsuchi Ibuki), you must complete a number of missions personally. First, defeat a couple generals in the center area just to clear things out. Then, move towards Mitsunari Ishida's position camped out in the southwest to receive a mission to defend him. Eliminate all of the generals attacking to succeed, then move toward Sakon Shima in the east to trigger a mission to defend him. Along the way, Ieyasu Tokugawa will most likely order Hanzou Hattori to charge Mitsunari. If he does so, go south and intercept Hanzou to defeat him personally. Yoshihiro will then tell Mitsunari to gather in the center. Take out more generals in the center if you think Mitsunari will have problems. Then, return to defending Sakon, which involves defeating the three enemy generals attacking. Ieyasu will now order Tadakatsu Honda to charge. Defeat him as he comes down south and Yoshihiro will order Sakon to the center. Go up to the northwest corner and defeat the three enemy generals besieging Ginchiyo Tachibana's camp. Afterward, Inahime will charge to the west. Go and defeat her. Once Ginchiyo reaches the center of the map, the real fun starts. A big number of Tokugawa army replacements suddenly appears, surrounding your allies in the general. You will then receive a mission to eliminate the Eastern Army, which basically involves killing every new general on the map. Be careful as Ginchiyo and Sakon have an ugly tendency to steal your kills because they swing so much faster than you can. Save the game after every successful kill on your part. Once you kill every general, the doors to Ieyasu's camp opens. At the same time, a supply team will show up from the northwest corner, moving south.
In Yukimura's fifth stage, The Osaka Campaign, you will startin the castle. Defeat the officer that will come on your floor, then make your way outside the castle. You will see plenty of officers outside in the castle courtyard waiting for your bloodlust. Eliminate them and the main gate will be open. The Tokugawa will send a cannon to destroy the castle and at the same time Inahime will approach from the east and Masamune will charge from the west heading towards the castle. Ignore them both and focus on destroying the cannon. Note: Do not worry if you accidentally kill enemy officers near the cannon. Once done, immediately defeat Ina before she enters the castle. Then, quickly cross the courtyard to the west, go through the castle, and defeat Masamune before he enters the castle. Note: You are free to kill the officers near Masamune. You will then get the precious item report and the weapon will on the second floor, in a black box. After that, you can complete the stage normally. Note: You may want to seal the gates to make your ally officers easier and try to use your second attack. The weapons stats are Base Attack 45, Fire Element, Life +19, Attack +35, Defense +38, Horse +18, Musou Charge +32.
